Although the personnel is trying hard to keep up the appearance, the Michelin star is a bit overrated..

I have enjoyed lunch and dinner with guests who appreciate "fine dining"...I prefer country Italian food...but have to testify to the excellence of their food preparation at Tigli in Theoria. A great destination for a special occasion. The old Villa is very romantic...a real pleasure...More

Situated not far from the Duomo the restaurant has a great outdoor space for aperitifs. There is a do it yourself Gin & Tonic list. Choose your gin, tonic and garnish. The measures are generous. They supply a platter of nibbles that are very generous.

I TIGLI in THEORIA is in a historical building in the very heart of the city of Como next to the lake and the Dome, dating back to the mid 15th century. The restraunt I Tigli in Theoria offers menus designed to ensure an experience of high contemporary cuisine and at the same time designed to offer to the guests an unexpected path, but balanced and of quality. The wine list, with the competence and professionalism of the Sommelier, proposes a series of tastings, unique in its kind for the selection of fine wines and for the prestige of served beverages. The restaurant has four STUBE, private rooms where privacy is absolutely guaranteed, for customers who seek privacy in a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere of pathos and elegance. On the first floor there is a charming and sociable lounge bar, a pleasant atmosphere of refined elegance to spend time in complete relaxation.
